Known for his huge movie roles in action films, Steven Seagal will now serve as an official representative of the Russian Foreign Ministry to help improve relations between the United States and Russia.
The 66-year-old actor will overlook the humanitarian field, including cooperation in culture, arts, public and youth exchanges. Seagal stated that he is “deeply humbled and honored” by the unpaid position and hopes “we can strive for peace, harmony and positive results in the world.”
Steven Seagal has served as somewhat of a Russian public figure in recent years, occasionally appearing on state television after publicly becoming a Russian citizen and receiving a passport personally from Putin in 2016.
A much better option than Donald Trump.
